ECE Program Outcome Data for 2017

First Annual Report for September, 2017

As part of TMCC's Early Childhood Education Program’s achieving and maintaining NAEYC accreditation, it must report annually on the program’s assessment of candidates, related to the NAEYC Initial and Advanced Preparation Standards, including outcomes specific to each accredited degree program.

Outcome Measure #1: The Number of Program Completers

The following chart indicates the number of program completers for the three most recent academic years.

Program Completers
Academic Year 2014-15 2015-16  2016-17 
Degree Part-time Full-time Part-time Full-time Part-time Full-time
AA Degree, ECE Emphasis 3 0 2 1 4 0
AAS Degree, Administration of ECE Emphasis 1 0 0 0 1 0
AAS Degree , Infant/Toddler Emphasis 1 0 1 0 1 0
AAS Degree, Preschool Emphasis 2 0 0 0 1 0
Total 7 0 3 1 7 0
Full and part-time status is determined as of last semester; full-time is 12 or more units

Outcome Measure #2: The Program Completion Rate

Q: What is the published timeframe for full-time students to complete the early childhood program(s) included in this Annual Report?
A: 2 years

(Note: The Commission defines the published timeframe as the number of terms an individual student was actually enrolled in the program. The terms do not have to be consecutive, but the total number of terms must meet the program’s expected time frame for completion. University-approved withdrawals (e.g., leaves of absence for reasons of health, maternity/paternity, mission work, military assignment) do not count toward the number of terms a student was enrolled in the program. Students taking longer due to reasons other than university-approved withdrawals (e.g., course repeats, remediation plans) cannot be considered as meeting completion expectations.” Language adapted from the Council on Academic Accreditation for Audiology, Speech Language Pathology of the American Speech Language Hearing Association at

The following charts indicate the percentage of full-time students completing the program within the program's published timeframe (institutions submitting multiple programs in a single Annual Report should complete a separate chart for each program.)

The program must complete the information for the 150% indicator and choose to report on either the 100%, 200% (or twice) or 300% (three times) indicator.

The academic years selected must fall within eight years of the date this annual report is submitted.

Outcome Measure #3: Institutional Selected Data

All programs are required to select at least one of three outcome measures on which to report. (Institutions submitting multiple programs in a single Annual Report may select the same or a different measure for each program and should complete a separate chart for each program.)

(A) The Fall-to-Fall retention rate in the program for each of the three most recently completed academic years.


(B) The number and percentage of program graduates employed in the early childhood profession or pursuing further education in the profession within one year of graduation for each of the three most recent academic years for which information is available.


(C) Institutionally designed measure that speaks to candidate outcomes in the program (list the measure and the data for the measure).

The data must be reported for the most recent three academic years. Such measures might include the average GPA of the graduating class, the number of candidates who completed their courses with a “C” or above, the pass rate on national performance assessments such as edTPA, etc.
